The Shakespeare Theatre joins forces with the Kennedy Center to present a fascinating evening of one-act plays written by the legendary playwright, including the unveiling of four of Williams’s newly discovered plays never before published or produced—until now. The evening will feature full productions of I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow, a captivating drama about the friendship between a middle-aged man and woman, along with the world premieres of And Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens…, which follows the story of a New Orleans drag queen; Escape, a compelling work reflective of the mother-and-son relationship found in The Glass Menagerie; The Municipal Abattoir, set in a totalitarian state; and These Are the Stairs You Got to Watch, an exploration of lost innocence as seen through the eyes of a young movie theater usher. You won’t want to miss the debut presentation of these theatrical gems, to be performed by some of today’s finest stage actors.
